RULE 463 - ORGANIC LIQUID STORAGE
(Adopted August 15, 1977)(Amended June 1, 1984)(Amended December 7, 1990)
(Amended March 11, 1994)


(a) Applicability

This rule applies to any above-ground stationary tank with a capacity of 75,000 liters (19,815 gallons) or greater used for storage of organic liquids, and any above-ground tank with a capacity between 950 liters (251 gallons) and 75,000 liters (19,815 gallons) used for storage of gasoline.

(b) Definitions

For purposes of this rule, the following definitions apply:

  1. CERTIFIED person is a person who has successfully completed the District tank self-inspection program, and who holds a certificate issued by the Executive Officer evidencing that such person is in good standing in this program.
  2. EXEMPT COMPOUND is any of the following compounds which have been determined to be non-precursors of ozone:

    (A) Group I

    chlorodifluoromethane (HCFC-22)
    trifluoromethane (HFC-23)
    dichlorotrifluoroethane (HCFC-123)
    2-chloro-1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane (HCFC-124)
    pentafluoroethane (HFC-125)
    1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134)
    tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134a)
    dichlorofluoroethane (HCFC-141b)
    chlorodifluoroethane (HCFC-142b)
    1,1,1-trifluoroethane (HFC-143a)
    1,1-diflouroethane (HFC-152a)
    cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated alkanes
    cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated ethers with no unsaturations
    cyclic, branched, or linear, completely fluorinated tertiary amines with no unsaturations
    sulfur-containing perfluorocarbons with no unsaturations and with sulfur bonds only to carbon and fluorine

    (B) Group II

    carbon tetrachloride
    methylene chloride
    1,1,1-trichloroethane (methyl chloroform)
    trichlorotrifluoroethane (CFC-113)

    trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11)
    dichlorotetrafluoroethane (CFC-114)
    chloropentafluoroethane (CFC-115)

    Use of Group II compounds will be restricted in the future because they are either toxic or potentially toxic, or upper atmospheric ozone depleters, or cause other environmental impacts. Specifically, the District Board has established a policy to phase out chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), methyl chloroform (1,1,1-trichloroethane), and carbon tetrachloride on or before January 1, 1996.

  3. GASOLINE means any petroleum distillate having a Reid vapor pressure of 200 mm Hg (3.9 pounds per square inch), or greater.
  4. ORGANIC LIQUID is any liquid containing VOCs.
  5. PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE (PRV) is a valve which is automatically actuated by upstream static pressure, and used for safety or emergency purposes.
  6. SEAL is a closure device between the tank wall and the floating roof edge that controls emissions of volatile organic compounds. Approved floating roof tank seals are categorized as follows:

    (A) Category "A" seals are seals approved by the Executive Officer as most effective in the control of volatile organic compounds and are deemed Best Available Control Technology (BACT) according to the criteria set forth in Attachment A - "Floating Roof Tank Seal Categories."

    (B) Category "B" seals are seals approved by the Executive Officer that are considered more effective than Category "C" seals based on the criteria set forth in Attachment A - "Floating Roof Tank Seal Categories."

    (C) Category "C" seals are seals approved by the Executive Officer which are currently in service but are considered least effective in the control of volatile organic compounds.

  7. TANK is any stationary above-ground reservoir or any other stationary above-ground container used for storage of an organic liquid.
  8. VAPOR TIGHT is a condition that exists when the reading on a portable hydrocarbon meter is less than 1,000 parts per million (ppm), expressed as methane, above background.
  9. VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) is any volatile or gaseous chemical compound containing the element carbon, excluding methane, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonic acid, metallic carbides, or carbonates, ammonium carbonate, and exempt compounds other than carbon tetrachloride.

  1. The findings of all tank self-inspections, whether completed or not, shall be recorded on the Rule 463 Compliance Report form prescribed by the Executive Officer and submitted to the District's Refinery Section in accordance with the rule's requirements. If an inspection is stopped before completion, indicate the reason for this action in the Comments section of the compliance report form.
  2. During compliance inspection, the person(s) conducting the inspection must have a copy of the Permit to Operate or Permit to Construct pertinent to the tank being inspected. Any discrepancies between the permit equipment description and the existing tank or the permit conditions and the actual operating conditions of the tank as verified during inspection must be recorded in the Comments section of the compliance report form.
  3. Inspect the ground level periphery of each tank for possible leaks in the tank shell. Complete the tank information section (D) on the report.
  4. For external floating roof tanks:

    o From the platform, conduct an overall visual inspection of the roof and check for obvious permit or rule violations. Record the information as shown under section F of the compliance report form.

    o During visual inspection of the roof, check for unsealed roof legs, open hatches, open emergency roof drains or vacuum breakers and record the findings on the report accordingly. Indicate presence of any tears in the fabric of both seals.

    o After the visual inspection, conduct an inspection of the entire secondary seal using the 1/8" and 1/2" probes. Record the gap data in section F(4) of the report.

    o Conduct an inspection of the entire primary seal using the 1/8", 1/2", and 1 1/2" probes. Inspect the primary seal by holding back the secondary seal. Record the gap data in section F(5) of the report.

    o Record all cumulative gaps between 1/8 inch and 1/2 inch ; between 1/2 inch and 1-1/2 inch ; and in excess of 1-1/2 inches, for both primary and secondary seals in section G of the report. Secondary seal gaps greater than 1/2 inch should be measured for length and width, and recorded in Comments under section (J) of the report.

  5. For internal floating roof tanks:

    o Using an explosimeter, measure the concentration of the vapor space above the internal floating roof in terms of lower explosive limit (LEL), and record the reading in section (E) of the report.

    o Conduct a visual inspection of the roof openings and the secondary seal, if applicable, and record findings on the report.

  6. Complete all necessary calculations and record all required data accordingly on the report.
